* BrotherSisterIncest: Cymoril is so good-looking that her brother Yrkoon wants to take her as his bride when he usurps Elric.


Added DiffLines:

* [[ImmuneToBullets Immune to Stormbringer]]: Stormbringer and its other incarnations are the greatest weapon in the cosmos, however there are enemies that shown themselves to be immune to Stormbringer's soul-devouring effects or even completely immune to any attack from Stormbringer. In those instances, Elric has to resort to spells or using a different weapon. Interestingly, all the enemies that are immune to it are minor creatures, while gods are vulnerable to Stormbringer.


Added DiffLines:

* PlanarChampion: Elric often goes to other dimensions to set right what's gone wrong.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: Elric gives the throne to the guy who earlier usurped him. Even the guy's sister (who's Elric's fiancee) says that Elric's actions are criminal in their foolishness.


Added DiffLines:

* WorldsMostBeautifulWoman: Cymoril is the most beautiful woman of an elf-like human race known for their beauty, the other most beautiful woman is the Law sorceress Myshella who looks exactly like Cymoril.

** This also qualifies as an UnbuiltTrope. Elric's Chaos and Order operate on BlueAndOrangeMorality, and neither is "good" or especially friendly toward humanity. Later uses of Law and Chaos identified the two concepts in relation to human morality as much as cosmic principles, and furthermore, non-AD&D-based applications generally run with the implicit assumption that Law is Good and Chaos is Evil.
